Rochambeau welcomes Director of the National Institute
on Alcohol Abuse and Addiction
On Wednesday March 15 th Rochambeau is pleased to present Dr. George F. Koob to students and parents of the high school. Dr. Koob is an internationally recognized authority on alcohol and stress while serving as the Director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Addiction (NIAAA). The goal of this branch of the National Institute of Health is to raise public awareness on the burden of alcohol abuse in our society while seeking new methodologies for diagnostics, treatment and prevention. Dr. Koob’s presentation represents the third component in our guest speaker series and we are very grateful to have him join us next week.
Dr. Koob began his career exploring the neurobiology of emotion and how the brain processes reward and stress. He later investigated through applied research the neurochemical mechanisms that drive emotion and how reward and stress can lead to addiction. Dr. Koob’s work allowed us to broaden our understanding of how alcohol and other substances affects our bodies and why some individuals develop addictions while others do not.
Dr. Koob’s presentation will begin promptly at 10:40 am until 11:20 am in the Auditorium. Students from the 9 th , 10 th and 11 th grades will be in attendance including parents as well. We look forward to seeing you there!
